The Golf in Bordeaux association includes eight golf courses less than an hour away from Bordeaux. They offer players a pass, discounts on green fees, delightful accommodation and package stays. The courses include:
Golf at the château: Les Vigiers in Dordogne-Périgord
A 16th century château, two 18-hole courses, a Michelin-starred restaurant, 77 rooms in a 4-star hotel and a spa... That's right, this is an exceptional setting. And close by are Monbazillac for wine-lovers, Bergerac with its medieval streets, and the green and charming banks of the River Dordogne… Truly exceptional.
Golf in the vineyards #1: Grand Saint-Emilionnais Golf Club
Just 10 km away from the Jurisdiction of Saint-Emilion, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Grand Saint-Emilionnais Golf Club rolls out its fairways on a course designed by Tom Doak. Rolling hills, centuries-old trees and the vineyards in the background will all help inspire your swing. There is also plenty of interesting heritage to see in the neighbourhood.
Golf in the vineyards #2: Médoc Resort Golf Course
The Médoc peninsula, between the estuary and the ocean, is at the core of the Bordeaux wine region, with many of the most prestigious names in French wine, including Pauillac, Margaux and Saint-Estèphe.
The Médoc Golf Course is ranked in the top 10 golf resorts in Europe, and plays host to a large number of international competitions and championships. A hotel, spa, restaurant and famous wine estates will be the ingredients in an unforgettable stay.
Golf beside the ocean: UGOLF Lacanau
The course is also in the Médoc peninsula, but this time in the west, on the coast, in the famous seaside resort of Lacanau.
Midway between the ocean and the lake, the Lacanau golf course is built on sand, and welcomes beginners and experienced players in all seasons.
